"Inner Self"

Many who look upon my face
Only see my outer appearance
Little do they know inside
Of my perserverance
Beauty has its place in life
But little to do with what's inside
Turmoil exists within
In which I must abide
In the vortex constantly spinning
Of what's inside my heart
Explanations are meaningless
Or where to even start
Looking upon my face
But not within
I remain estranged
To my chagrin
Within the beauty of my inner self

"From Within""

Lips have spoken many words
But actions are another story
What is said and what is meant
Is almost allegory
In words and motion
I discretely hide
Buried deep beneath the wounds
Demons still abide
Those who spoke words of hope
In essence had belied
Hooks that sunk into my flesh
In actions that imparted
Kindness mistaken for weakness
In flight my heart departed

"Ebbing Tides"

Inspired by the lull of waves
Written in the sand
Although it fades
The tides command
Sandcastles which topple
Upon the shore
Like dreams that seem to fade
Claimed by the ebbing waters
From whence such dreams were made
Nearby is the lighthouse
Where heavens presence lives
The sands of glory
Taking my heart
As quickly as it gives
